Dear Potential Client, 

Thank you for considering my services.

 

Your first consideration in choosing to work with me likely concerns my fee's and whether I accept insurance.

 

My fee's are commensurate with insurance reimbursement, however, I am not a provider for any insurance company.  

 

If you have out-of-network benefits, you will be able to recover your payment to me, minus your co-pay.  I provide you with a receipt that includes all the information you need to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement. I also provide flexible payment options when necessary. If you do not have out-of-network benefits your payments can be deducted from your taxes as a medical expense. 

Why I do not accept insurance:

Because I am not a contracted provider to an insurance company, I am not obliged to provide information about your mental health to your insurance company. I had been uncomfortable with insurance company's requests for clinical information in order to document that a client's mental health treatment is "medically necessary." As an out-of-network provider, I am able to protect your confidentiality. However for you to receive reimbursement I must provide your insurance company with a diagnosis.  

Fee Schedule:

45 min: $90.00

60min:  $115.00 

75min:  $135.00

I do not charge for cancellations due to weather, illness or urgent family matters.

Available Hours:

I am accepting new clients who can accommodate morning and daytime hours before 3:00 on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.
